    Looks fantastic, you should have gone for blue ripjaws though. :lol:

    What did you use to bend the curves in the metal so smoothly? Oh, and what's it like temps wize?

    Wonderfully designed and executed, but I have to ask - where did you get the 90 degree molexes?

    Saw these last picture and said to myself - Hmm, nice case, wonder what brand it is. So I had to check back a page and then I saw that you did it yourself. Perfect Nuno!

    Yeah.. those were cheaper! :D
    I do have the blue ripjaws heatsinks and was to change them but got some wrong thermalpads, and never actually did it.. but, never say never.. :D

    the curved metal I just used a small plastic tube as guide, and bend the sheet with my hands :clap:

    funny you ask about the temps... I never really kept track on that.
    I'll check it out next time I'm able.

    Thanks adidan!

    oh man.. you don't give up! You already saw the case in person and know that it isn't possible!!! case would have to be completely redone. :lol:

    we're still to make something together my friend;)

    Thank you! :)
    do you mean the sata power plugs? got it from MDPC-X.


    thanks Hannes! really appreciate it! ;)
    but I'll have to disagree with you on that last one. It's far from perfect! :hehe:
    False modesty aside, I am proud of it, however there's several little "thingies" that could have gone better, and I can only blame my lack of experience and skill.

    Nevertheless It's always a pleasure to hear compliments from you my friend. :p


    And for all of the above, a big thanks!
    Hope you enjoy it as much as I.

    Oh, and also:

    +Subscribed!
    +5! (why can't i give 5 to you..? The field is gone :-( But it's the thought that counts, right?)

    *EDIT
    HEHE just read the first page, found out that there was another one now :wallbash::read:
    Too bad that it was finished, but the end result was REALLY nice! :D Good work! :clap:
    :)

    Really impressive work.
    I really like the black and blue theme, to bad that the RAM sink is red. It would have looked really nice with a anodized dark blue sink instead, but it's not like the manufacturers let you choose.

    looking forward to the next build;)

    Very nicely done. It takes some doing to fit a lot into a small case. it is so much easier to make a large case.

    Well, you perfected it with the tools you had by the point you made it. You should be proud of it. :) Experience and skill develop. This build is well made and I wasn't just complimenting you when I said that I thought it was a bought case, I really thought it was because it's execution was almost inhumanly done. ;-)

    Wow, you work fast, I love this, and the size is perfect! In the build I didnt quite realise how small it was but on seeing it finished it looks great! Congrats!
